Evolution of Mesobuthus gibbosus (Brullé, 1832) (Scorpiones: Buthidae) in the northeastern Mediterranean region
The case of M. gibbosus is in favour of a taxon‐oriented ‘perception’ of the natural history of a given area because it is an old northeastern Mediterranean species that has retained valuable bits of genetic information, reflecting some of the oldest vicariant events that have occurred in the area.

Aim This study uses molecular data in conjunction with palaeogeography to infer the most plausible biogeographical scenario accounting for the current distributional pattern of Iurus dufoureius.
Evolution and radiation in the scorpion Buthus elmoutaouakili Lourenco and Qi 2006 (Scorpiones: Buthidae) at the foothills of the Atlas Mountains (North Africa).
The divergence time estimates based on a Bayesian approach support the onset of differentiation into these main clades along the Pliocene when climatic oscillations started and a constant global cooling preceded the glacial-interglacial cycles of the Pleistocene.
Microallopatry Caused Strong Diversification in Buthus scorpions (Scorpiones: Buthidae) in the Atlas Mountains (NW Africa)
Genetic structure and geographical distribution of genetic (sub)clusters follow the classical theory of allopatric differentiation where distinct groups evolve without range overlap until reproductive isolation and ecological differentiation has built up.
Hidden diversity of Euscorpius (Scorpiones: Euscorpiidae) in Greece revealed by multilocus species-delimitation approaches

High variation, deep clade divergences, many cryptic lineages, paraphyly at subgenus level, and sympatry of several new and formerly known lineages are revealed in the genus Euscorpius across the Mediterranean region.

Two new species of Euscorpius from Euboea Island, Greece (Scorpiones: Euscorpiidae)
Communities of practice and participatory action research: the formation of a synergy for the development of museum programmes for early childhood
This study explores the integration of two key ideas and working frameworks: a community of educational practice formed by the synergy between a natural history museum and a university department of…
The foraging activity of Mesobuthus gibbosus (Scorpiones: Buthidae) in central and south Aegean archipelago
The foraging activity of Mesobuthus gibbosus was studied and analysed over 290 field samplings in Koufonisi island and Crete during the period of maximal activity of the species, showing that on both islands males and juveniles searched for prey mainly relatively near or far from their burrows (“sit‐and‐wait” strategy), whereas females foraged comparatively more than males and youngsters at the entrances of their burrow (‘doorkeeping’ strategy).
Three new species of Euscorpius (Scorpiones: Euscorpiidae) from Greece.
Three new species of the genus Euscorpius Thorell, 1876 are described from Greece, and species-level divergence is confirmed by multiple DNA markers in Parmakelis et al. (2013).
